HI! Five feet seven inches, 228 inches of soda drinks, too large portions of anything and a fierce need to rid myself of it all! Mother of three wonderful boys and a grandmother to a one year old boy. A loving wife to a loving husband that thinks I'm beautiful fat and all (funny how he is always much more cuddly when I'm thinner!). Never had a problem with weight even after three children until thyroid cancer 12 years ago and a measured, calculated amount of thyroid hormone seems to fight any prior losing goals. I'm 42 now and I can't let any more layers pack on and I would like to see my cheek bones again! I would like to lose 78 pounds - arrgggghhhh - that sounds unbelievable, but it took 12 years to put in on, I think I can take a year to take it off! I need encouragement, friendly support - I have the motivation, just some bad days I have a tougher time getting through that make me want to throw in the towel - I think I've found a great place from all I've read...I'm READY!
Goals and motivation
I have lost 8 of those pounds but really should of done much better by now so I raised the stakes, joined a gym and now need to work on nutrition. TODAY IS MY TOMORROW, TOMORROW IS MY HOPE!
UPDATE NOV 07: Well, I have lost approx. 40 pounds now total since becoming a member with FT. I have found my cheekbones and curves that I haven't seen in almost 15 years now. Life is tough...but being healthier makes it easier to get through and turning to exercise rather than food is much more satisfying. I gain all over, really not distributing in one particular area more, and I lose the same, so the process was slow as far as others noticing, but the past few months people have been commenting and it really makes me feel good knowing that maybe it may help them to make better choices, too.
